Glencoe is a magnificent place, to be appreciated even more on a Landrover safari organised by the local NTS Visitors Centre. Our guide Jamie, was knowledgeable, entertaining and very passionate about his subject. We had a fantastic time, seeing and hearing information from a completely different perspective than you do by foot, or by car. Worth every penny. Highly recommended,... More

Cannot think of words that will properly describe Glencoe. You just have to go and see it for yourself. It is truly the most spectacular place I have ever seen.

I have visited Glencoe three times in my life. The first two times, it was dark and stormy, yet seemed appropriate. This time the sun was blazing in the sky. Glencoe is one of the most beautiful places on earth. Your eyes can't take it all in, let alone your camera. Surely, this is what heaven looks like.

We stopped by here on our way from Oban to Edinburgh. We stopped and just took in the scenery. It is perfect to do by automobile because there are many places to pull over to look. There are little parking lots near the scenic areas. There was a bagpiper playing at one of the stops, of course, so that was... More

Wow having never driven through Glen Coe we did not know what to expect, as we rounded the corner the views were absolutely breathtaking. Will definitely visit again and do so walking.

lovely scenery even though it was raining when we drove through. We passed by some waterfalls along the road. Lots of walkers, looked like it would have been a nice place to stop, but we were on route so didn't have the time.

If you aren't an avid history reader, Glen Coe looks like a paralyzingly beautiful glen in which to feast your eyes. I was not aware that our bus would only be stopping for a 5 minute picture taking. I was most disappointed in this, because this area is so steeped in history it makes your mind fuzz over. Prior to... More

Every time I visit Glen Coe it takes my breath away. It doesn't matter what the weather is like either. Even on cloudy days it has a really moody feel to it. Pictures don't do it justice. It's a truly majestic place. My only problem with it is that wherever you stop, if a bus load of tourists isn't already... More

Absolutely fantastic, the most beautiful of all the glens we saw on our trip to Scotland (drove 1500 km, over 2 weeks). Had also possibility to climb Bauchaille Etive Mor and bag a couple of Munros on the way. Defenately a must!
